Download as PDF rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 10058 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 37 / Monday, February 25, 2008 / Notices County, CA, by an unknown person. The human remains were brought to the museum by a private collector and accessioned into the Department of Mammalogy in September, 1951. In 1993, the human remains were transferred to the Department of Anthropology (Accession numbers LACM 51136, LACM.51137, and LACM 51139). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The accession records indicate two individuals were recovered from a location in Kings County ‘‘7 miles south of Lemore.’’ The other individual was recovered ‘‘5 miles south of Lemore.’’ Based on museum records, the human remains are Native American. There is no further documentation on the original context of the human remains. In or before 1956, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an unknown locality from probably the interior of California. The human remains were brought to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation by a private collector and accessioned on September 18, 1956 (Accession number A.6988.56–24). No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The collector designated the human remains as that of a ‘‘Yokuk Indian.’’ The accession records do not indicate a specific locality nor is there further documentation on the original context of the human remains. Based on collector information and museum records, the museum has determined that the human remains are reasonably believed to be Yokut. The five individuals described above had previously been determined to be culturally unidentifiable. However, during consultation, tribal representatives of the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California established that the Yokut had territories in portions of central California, including Kern and Kings Counties. The Yokut are divided into Northern, Southern, and Foothill Yokut. Descendants of the Yokut are members of the Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians of California; Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; Table Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California. Officials of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of five individuals of Native American VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:34 Feb 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 ancestry. Officials of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians of California; Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; Table Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. Margaret Ann Hardin, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation, 900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007, telephone (213) 763–3382, before March 26, 2008. Repatriation of the human remains to the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation is responsible for notifying the Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians of California; Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; Table Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California that this notice has been published.

The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California (also known as the Tachi Yokut Tribe) and Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California. After further consultation with the tribal representatives, cultural affiliation has been revised for a Notice of Inventory Completion previously published in the Federal Register of August 16, 1999 (FR Doc 99–21068, pages 44535–44536) by adding the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California. This notice supersedes the previously published Notice of Inventory Completion of August 16, 1999. In 1932, human remains representing one individual were recovered from the Robla Lomas Ranch, Woodlake, Tulare County, CA, under unknown circumstances. In 1972, the human remains were donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History (now the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation) by Helen Phillips Spears. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Collections documentation indicates this individual was found with ten other individuals on the Robla Lomas Ranch. Documentation also suggests that the human remains are probably those of an individual killed by the Spanish during a battle known to have occurred at the Robla Lomas Ranch in 1832. Ethnohistoric information, as well as consultation with tribal representatives of the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California and Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California, indicates that the Robla Lomas Ranch is within the historic territory traditionally occupied by the Yokut.

Angeles County Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves 
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the 
completion of an inventory of human remains in the possession of the 
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation, Los Angeles, 
CA. The human remains were removed from Tulare County, CA.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's 
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003 (d)(3). 
The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the 
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native 
American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National 
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Natural 
History Museum of Los Angeles County professional staff in consultation 
with representatives of the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa 
Rosa Rancheria, California (also known as the Tachi Yokut Tribe) and 
Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California.
    After further consultation with the tribal representatives, 
cultural affiliation has been revised for a Notice of Inventory 
Completion previously published in the Federal Register of August 16, 
1999 (FR Doc 99-21068, pages 44535-44536) by adding the Santa Rosa 
Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California. This notice 
supersedes the previously published Notice of Inventory Completion of 
August 16, 1999.
    In 1932, human remains representing one individual were recovered 
from the Robla Lomas Ranch, Woodlake, Tulare County, CA, under unknown 
circumstances. In 1972, the human remains were donated to the Los 
Angeles County Museum of Natural History (now the Natural History 
Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation) by Helen Phillips Spears. No 
known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    Collections documentation indicates this individual was found with 
ten other individuals on the Robla Lomas Ranch. Documentation also 
suggests that the human remains are probably those of an individual 
killed by the Spanish during a battle known to have occurred at the 
Robla Lomas Ranch in 1832. Ethnohistoric information, as well as 
consultation with tribal representatives of the Santa Rosa Indian 
Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California and Tule River Indian 
Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California, indicates that the 
Robla Lomas Ranch is within the historic territory traditionally 
occupied by the Yokut. Descendants of the Yokut are members of the 
Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians of California; Santa Rosa 
Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; Table 
Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River Indian Tribe of the 
Tule River

confirm that the human remains are culturally affiliated with the 
Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians of California; Santa Rosa 
Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; Table 
Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River Indian Tribe of the 
Tule River Reservation, California.
    Officials of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County 
Foundation have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the 
human remains described above represent the physical remains of one 
individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Natural 
History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation also have determined 
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared 
group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi 
Indians of California; Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa 
Rancheria, California; Table Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule 
River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. 
Margaret Ann Hardin, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County 
Foundation, 900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007, telephone 
(213) 763-3382, before March 26, 2008. Repatriation of the human 
remains to the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, 
California may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come 
forward.
    The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Foundation is 
responsible for notifying the Picayune Rancheria of Chuckchansi Indians 
of California; Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, 
California; Table Mountain Rancheria of California; and Tule River 
Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California that this notice 
has been published.
